FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Noe Diaz celebrated the Independence Day weekend with his family as he always did - with hospitality and laughter. On Sunday, July 3, Mr. Diaz’s yard was full of people who were celebrating the holiday. There was a mechanical bull and lots of smiles. Mr. Diaz knew no strangers.

“He always wanted to have everybody come over,” said David Aguirre, a friend of Mr. Diaz. “It didn’t matter who you were, he’d invite you over to his house. We noticed it was getting dark and I said hey, let’s do the fireworks.”

That’s when everything changed. In a matter of moments, Mr. Diaz fell victim to a tragic fireworks accident. His friend opened up to ABC21′s Tom Powell during the News at 7.

A Fort Wayne family is grieving the loss of a husband and father who died in a tragic accident on July 3.
